4 1/2 ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Massive beats and throbbing grooves underpin the Norwegian trumpeter’s fiery solos in a project that forms a bridge between ECM’s improvised soundscapes and the brave new world of trip-hop, drum’n’bass, ambient/illbient, techno, industrial, electronica and samples. Khmer topped the German jazz charts, and Molvær’s band has been highly successful on the festival circuit
